Need a tool to note down time [#permalink] New post 12 Nov 2005, 17:29
I try to solve questions in 20s or 30s, one after the other, and time my effort even while practising. The pressure to complete the 20s or 30s (almost always of a type) while being aware of time ticking away is more close to reality. But I allow myself unlimited time to be sure about the answer. My problem is that I am not able to find out which questions take the most time. Wouldn't it be great to find out how much time we need to conclusively mark the answers in the OG and then analyse?

I have tried the C prompt in dos (hitting the time command after every question) but its a cumbersome technique.

Having an upper limit on time affects my accuracy.

Kaplan's CD has this feature but you need this feature for the difficult ones.

Any other CD like kaplan with original questions ?

I haven't tried this. But just thought of it - Have a digital clock and when you mark the answer in a paper, also mark the time at that instant. If you finished Q 10 at 1:22:33 and Q 11 at 1:25:44, then
Q10 A - 22:33
Q11 E - 25:44
This I am sure will not take more than a 2 - 3 secs extra for each Q. While reviewing, if you skim thru this, you will notice where you spent most of the time.
So in a set of 20, you would have spent a max additional 1 min in doing this. You can factor that out if you want it so accurate :wink:
